RUSSELL AND KAILEY DICKERSON REVEAL THEYRE EXPECTING A RAINBOW BABY
Date: Apr 18, 2023 Posted By: Paige Davis
Russell Dickerson and his wife Kailey Dickerson are seeing blue – again!
The country couple, already parents to 2˝-year-old son Remington, revealed on social media that theyre expecting a second son.
God gave me a…. BOY! Kailey wrote. So grateful we get to tell you Remington is going to be a big brother this fall!! 🎉🎉
Kailey employed Remington to share the news with his dad. In the first of two video clips on social media, the mother held up a positive pregnancy test and said, Oh my gosh. Then she asked the toddler to hold the tests and suggested they take those to the singer.
Russell, who was working outside, was surprised by the special delivery.
No way! he exclaimed before breaking into a huge smile.
The second clip shows the couples gender reveal. While the babys sex was supposed to be a secret from the parents, someone added the gender to the subject line of an email, and Russell saw it. He executed a special surprise for his wife, complete with blue balloons, streamers and their son in a blue wig.
Members of the country music community wasted no time sharing their congratulations.

CARRIE UNDERWOOD HITS THE TOWN WITH HER GIRLFRIENDS IN “HATE MY HEART” MUSIC VIDEO
Date: Nov 06, 2022 Posted By: Paige Davis
Carrie Underwood knows how to throw the ultimate girls’ night out.
In the midst of her critically acclaimed The Denim & Rhinestones Tour – the eight-time GRAMMY Award winner released a high-energy music video for “Hate My Heart,” which became the No. 1 most-added single at country radio.
The Shaun Silva-directed video finds Underwood and her girl squad coping with messy breakups. The cinematic clip begins like any popular rom-com with females acknowledging their self-worth and calling it quits on toxic relationships.
Following several door slams and signs of frustration, Silva films the four ladies approaching their breakups in different ways. While one indulged in ice cream, another maxed-out her credit card online shopping. On the other hand, Underwood went to the gym to channel her rage. The multi-platinum artist displayed her incredibly toned legs on the treadmill and mind-boggling boxing skills.
If country music fans watch closely, the singer paid homage to her chart-topping classic “Before He Cheats.” A friend engraved her name into her ex’s leather seats of his car.
Eventually, Underwood built up the courage to hit the town and reclaim her happiness. Without any convincing, her girl gang followed. The ladies head to a Carrie Underwood concert, the perfect place to heal a broken heart. The video captures the hitmaker riding a mechanical bull and crowd surfing.
Towards the end of the clip, Underwood the fan ended up on stage with Underwood the country phenomenon. Her posse did the same and stepped in as the all-female band. While they were leaving the venue, they compared themselves to their alter-egos.
“I could totally be a rock star,” said Underwood with a wink.
The singer-songwriter and Silva filmed on location at Nashville’s Wildhorse Saloon. Silva served as the director for Underwood and Jason Aldean’s music video for their award-winning duet “If I Didn’t Love You.”
The powerhouse vocalist co-wrote “Hate My Heart” alongside frequent collaborators Hillary Lindsey, David Garcia, and HARDY. The party-starting banger lives on “Denim & Rhinestones,” which was released in June. The songstress is currently on the first leg of her 43-city stop tour with Jimmie Allen as direct support.
At a recent show in Texas, Kelsea Ballerini made a guest appearance and announced that the 2023 CMT Music Awards would be held in Austin at the Moody Center. The “Subject To Change” singer officially declared that Underwood, the most decorated artist in CMT Awards history, would perform at the star-studded affair. The 2023 CMT Music Awards will air on Sunday, April 2.
Vince Gill Launches Four-Night Ryman Residency With Marathon Set
Date: Aug 06, 2022 Posted By: Paige Davis
Vince Gill’s marathon set at Nashville’s Ryman Auditorium on Thursday proved why he’ll be celebrated on CMT series “CMT GIANTS.” The singer’s nearly four-hour show spanned his vast catalog of hits and musical influences as well as highlighted his vulnerabilities and humor. The concert was part of the Country Music Hall of Famer’s 2022 trek, which marks the first time Gill has toured with his band in three years as he’s been on the road with the Eagles since 2017.
In between telling candid and comical stories about his life and career, Gill performed more than 30 songs with his all-star band. The band includes “The Voice” Season 21 runner up Wendy Moten, who announced Gill’s latest career achievement during her mesmerizing five-song set.
“Mr. Vince Gill is going to be honored very soon in September by ‘CMT: GIANTS,’” Moten said. “It’s a big deal. Only five other icons have had this honor. They’re going to celebrate his legacy, they’re going to celebrate his music, his life in country music. … He earned it! It’s going to be the greatest artists of all time performing Vince Gill’s songs. The guests are heavy hitters. The band also is going to be there and all they do is win awards every year.”
Thursday’s Ryman performance was just a glimpse at Gill’s massive catalog and a preview of the upcoming television special, which premieres Friday, Sept. 16 on CMT. Throughout the evening, Gill was backed by a band that featured frequent collaborator and award-winning steel player Paul Franklin alongside famed Nashville studio musicians, including guitar player Jedd Hughes, drummer Billy Thomas, bassist Jimmie Lee Sloas and keyboard player John Jarvis. Guitar player Jack Schneider and singers Moten and Gill’s daughter Corrina Grant Gill rounded out the eight-piece ensemble.
Gill launched his first of four back-to-back performances at the Ryman with No. 1 songs “One More Last Chance,” “Tryin’ to Get Over You,” “Don’t Let Our Love Start Slippin’ Away” and “I Still Believe In You.” He joked that it was a collection of songs “that allowed me to buy a house I can no longer afford to live in.”
“Then along came that Amy Grant girl, saved my ass!” he continued. “My bride Amy is doing fine. She had a bicycle wreck last Wednesday over in Percy Warner Park and thank God she was wearing her helmet. She was knocked unconscious for 10 or 15 minutes.”
The Ryman concert was Gill’s first time back on stage since Grant’s bike accident and he and his daughter’s emotions were visible. He introduced spellbinding ballad “Whenever You Come Around” as, “My favorite song to sing about my favorite girl.” Later, he’d give the spotlight to Corrina for “When My Amy Prays.” She changed the lyrics to “When My Mama Prays” and choked back tears during the powerful performance, which garnered a standing ovation.
Gill’s set spanned his musical influences. His love of bluegrass was showcased on “High Lonesome Sound,” as was his appreciation for Merle Haggard and Buck Owens with standout covers of “The Bottle Let Me Down” and “Together Again,” both featured on his 2013 Bakersfield album with Franklin. “You gotta know where you came from to ever know where the hell you’re going,” Gill said.
He also performed his first co-write with Whisperin’ Bill Anderson with the pensive “Which Bridge to Cross (Which Bridge to Burn)” as well as shared one of the many life lessons he learned while writing “Look At Us” with Max T. Barnes.
“If we didn’t have people that taught us how to do this, it wouldn’t go on,” Gill commented. “We have to learn in our own way, play in our own way, figure out how to keep it going.”
Gill’s set included several new songs he wrote during the pandemic. The Nashville Songwriters Hall of Famer captivated as he told the stories behind each one. The powerful story songs covered love and loss from the perspective of a parent whose child went off to war on “When a Soldier Dies” and the poignant “Benny’s Song,” which Gill penned after the death of his oldest friend, Benny, in 2020.
“It’s hard to put yourself out there and be vulnerable sometimes, but it means the most when you are,” he said.
Additional highlights included “Go Rest High on That Mountain,” a song he dedicated to his late brother, fan favorite “When I Call Your Name” and rollicking set closer “Liza Jane.” Gill’s first of four nights at Ryman Auditorium exemplified his “GIANTS” status as the singer’s marathon set showcased his many hits as well as his power as a comedic and thoughtful frontman. All the while, Gill’s concert displayed his unyielding passion for music.
“I’ve been doing this professionally for 50 years,” Gill said. “Somebody, when I was 15 years old, said they’d pay me a little bit of money to come play at their beer joint and I haven’t stopped since. … What I know – without any doubt – if I never had any success, I would still be playing some Holiday Inn bar six nights a week. I love music that much.”
Gill’s tour continues tonight at the Ryman Auditorium. “CMT GIANTS: Vince Gill” premieres Friday, Sept. 16, on CMT. Previous artists featured in the franchise are Reba McEntire (2006), Hank Williams, Jr. (2007), Alan Jackson (2008), Kenny Rogers (2020) and Charley Pride (2021).
Drew Baldridge is Going To Be a Dad!
Date: Jun 01, 2022 Posted By: Paige Davis
And then there were three.
Country singer Drew Baldridge and his wife Katherine are expecting their first baby. The announcement comes on the heels of the couple’s first wedding anniversary. Baby Baldridge is due in December.
“We couldn’t be happier!” the country singer shared on social media.
The ”She’s Somebody’s Daughter” singer told People that he and Katherine found out about the unexpected pregnancy on March 31.
“Katie took a test the night before I was going out on tour, and she didn’t expect to get a positive result,” he said. “She screamed my name upstairs and came downstairs holding the test and we both about fell over with shock and excitement.”
The couple doesn’t yet know if the nursery should be pink or blue, but said they are planning a gender reveal event. They haven’t solidified name choices, either.
The singer said they have a “couple of names that we’re thinking on.”
The couple told People that the mother-to-be was experiencing some morning sickness but that it was getting better as time went on. Now, they are concentrating on making a place in their home of the baby and hope to take a few small trips together before his or her winter arrival.
“We started talking about starting a family and a life together, and we knew we needed to take this next step so we could make that happen,” Baldridge said of the marriage. “Katie makes me a better man. She reminds me to put others first and to love with a bigger heart. I really can’t picture my life without her anymore and I know if she wasn’t in it, I’d feel empty.”
